First of all, the color scheme makes me want to puke. Thats my view. Next, if brittania adopts the scheme, i'll break down crying. I not only like the white euros, they are my favorite. Brittannia has the best color scheme ever! Oh yes, I actually really like the new LTU scheme. Finaly, why don't some of the european airlines get creative like fronteir with their schemes? What happened to the days of creative BA tails? Im already sick of the new ribbon tail things. How about hawaiins special painted 717's? I love photographing them in hawaii! Anyway, thats my opinion, and sorry for straying.

Well, I am a little indiffrent on this particular livery. But at least it is not a so called 'Euro-White'.
While on the Euro-White subject, I believe that the Europeans and their carriers often get unjust blame for creating these dull liveries, when in reality a US carrier actually got this trend started in the late 60s. From what I remember, Airwest a US west coast regional carrier at the time actually introduced this design in 1968. This carrier would later become Hughes Airwest, better known for the banana yellow fleet of DC-9s, F-27s and 727s. I suppose why the Europeans (carriers) get the blame for this trend was because of Air France, UTA and Austrian's quick adoption of this design in the early to mid 70s as well as their high visability on the international scene.
